AVE DE KOSOK


In 1927, the archaeologist Mejía Xespe - pupil of Julio C Tello, the father of the Peruvian archaeology - it is informed about the presence of some mysterious geoglifos or lines or lines on the floor in the Peruvian coast. In those days, the archaeological studies began and it didn't occur bigger importance to these sugerentes lines in the Pampas of Nasca. We should understand that for the science of that their attractiveness was then smaller in front of other archaeological places, be about the fascinating cultures preincas like Chavín, in the department of Ancash, Chan-Chan in Trujillo, and, of course, majestic Machu Picchu in Cusco.

But it was that same year, 1927 that it arrived in Peru another investigator, the doctor Paul Kosok who was shown very attracted by these cultural before Columbus expressions.

In one of their first traveled by the south of the country, when stopping in the high of a plateau, he/she could observe diverse extensive lines in both sides of the highway, near the mountains. Beyond a simple curiosity, Kosok cleaned in form it standardizes the lines, observing like they appeared - carefully on the floor - geometric diverse figures: triangles, rectangles, quadrangles, etc. The lines were guided toward multiple addresses and extensions, likening some; fine roads and sidewalks and other; wide and wide tracks.

Big it was their astonishment when Kosok, the same day of the discovery, when projecting in lines in their board those supposed roads, he/she could see that one of the drawings acquired the unmistakable form of a bird in the middle of flight. But had the key of the enigma found? Kosok understood that before the he/she was quietly spread in these drawings what could constitute the Book of Bigger Astronomy of the World.

The term geoglifo (geo, earth and glyphen, engraving), it was established by Kosok and Reiche and it is at the moment of use generalized by the specialists of the topic.
